A Little Behind Time

Posted by Dirck on 27 January, 2011

I am not referring to my diverse anachronisms.  I am rather considering the foolishness of preparing a wish list a month after Christmas.

I don’t have much on my mind today, relative to pens, books, or slightly fuzzy social philosophy, so I thought I might devote a few minutes to writing down what pens I don’t have and would like to.   I commented at some point in the past that I have hit some point of criticality in the mass of pens I’ve got, and don’t have the fever to grab ’em with both hands.  There are some, however, that I’d like to get and which I’ve been kept from mainly by finances– either they’re new and expensive, or old and rare and expensive.  However, if I write them down and put the list where it can be seen, wandering philanthropists with a burden of pens might see it and take pity on me, or alternatively say to themselves, “Well, I’ve got three of those, and he’s got a couple of thing’s I’d like, so maybe a trade is in order.”

So, rather than sit here thinking about it, I’ll get on with the doing.  Watch for a new tab at the top of the page in the near future.

…but before I go, I’ll mention that thanks are in order to the kind author of Whatever, who has apparently suckered a ton of folks into looking at my work with a link or two, and thus increased the chances of a wandering philanthopist looking in.  Check out the back issues, folks– I am sometimes slightly more interesting than this.

Today’s pen: Sheaffer Valiant vacuum variant
